Teaming Up to Create Leaders
Vonde, Dee Anne S.; Maas, Pat; McKay, Tom
Principal Leadership, v5 n8 p41-44 Apr 2005
Schools cannot prepare students to become leaders in society on their own. Schools must partner with community agencies and expose students to leadership in the world. Partnerships create a broad range of support and opportunity, allowing students to learn and engage themselves in life-changing initiatives. For the past several years, students from Lord Beaverbrook High School in Calgary, Alberta, have partnered with staff members from Calgary Family Services, Developmental Disabilities Resource Centre, and Calgary Health Region. The partnerships have provided students with countless opportunities for proactive involvement in the community. This article describes Lord Beaverbrook's Together Everyone Achieves More (T.E.A.M.) Leadership program, a program that has created fertile ground for the growth of partnerships. The program pairs students with professionals in the community. The students supply the vision for service projects, and the adult professionals contribute their support and knowledge to make them work. The students develop servant leadership qualities and expand their perception of community. (Contains 1 resource.)
